March is 'Music in Our Schools' Month

Partners Post, March 2015

Music in Our SchoolsUpper Merion Area High School senior Kaitlyn Lutz started playing the violin when she was 3 years old. Once she started elementary school, her school's music program turned her early interest into a lifelong passion.

"If I didn't have music, I'd feel lost," Kaitlyn said. "Music has always been a big part of my life. Thanks to the strings program at my high school, I get to start every day with music."

Kaitlyn and her fellow members of Upper Merion's Chamber Strings Ensemble traveled to Harrisburg this month to perform in the Capitol Rotunda, kicking off a month of live performances from Pennsylvania student musicians in honor of National "Music in Our Schools" Month.

The Chamber Strings players, followed by choirs, bands, orchestras, and other small ensembles, showcased their talents and reminded state legislators working in the Capitol that music education is an integral part of public schools — one that supports academic achievement and high-quality public education.
